An accuracy requirement of ±0.011 degrees in the declination measurement of a remotely imaged munition cannot be satisfied using a conventional camera. A camera, error characterization, and error correction techniques are designed and developed that satisfy the accuracy requirement. The images are acquired and processed using an ARDEC developed data acquisition and image processing system. Based on internal testing, the developed system is expected to meet design goals during a formal certification process.
